The Nauru Agreement was developed and executed in 1982 as a platform for the Parties to collaborate more closely to develop common fishery management approaches and increase their level of participation in tropical tuna fisheries in the Western and Central Pacific. The Agreement has served as the figure head instrument since that time, including through substantial amendments in 2010 that signaled a “new era of PNA”, with a renewed commitment to that close collaboration and the creation of a dedicated office to serve the interests of the Parties. Parties continue to hold the core ideal that these common pool resources can only be managed sustainably and economically as a collective, and remain committed to that end. See attachment for more.
